DEFENSE SECURITY COOPERATION AGENCY
MEMORANDUM FOR :
DEPUTY UNDER SECRETARY OF THE AIR FORCE
Assignment of Code "G5" for Afghanistan Security Forces Fund (ASFF), Two Year Funds, DSCA Policy 09-52, [SAMM E-Change 148]
This memorandum updates SAMM Chapter 4, Table C4.T2., Country, International Organization, and Regional Codes and FMS Eligibility, to add code "G5" to track FY2010 ASFF, provided under Continuing Resolution Authority (CRA), Department of Interior, Environment, and Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2010 (P.L. 111-88). These funds will remain available until September 30, 2011.
Once the CRA expires and the full year appropriation bill is issued, this memorandum, to include the instructions for preparing "G5" cases and LOA notes, will be revised to cite the appropriate public law. All implemented cases should be modified prior to case closure to replace the CRA (P.L. 111-88) with the full year appropriations public law.
As a matter of policy, all Pseudo LOA documents using the "G5" country code should be expended as well as fully reconciled and closed on or before July 31, 2016.
The Defense Security Cooperation Agency must authorize and will assign use of this code for Pseudo LOA documents. The following information applies:
This change will be included in the automated version of the SAMM found on the DSCA Web Page as SAMM E-Change 148.
If you have any questions concerning this guidance, please contact Mr. Kidd Manville, DSCA-STR/POL, firstname.lastname@example.org, (703) 604-6594.
